Ridge structural equation modelling with correlation matrices for ordinal and continuous data.

Abstract

This paper develops a ridge procedure for structural equation modelling (SEM) with ordinal and continuous data by modelling the polychoric/polyserial/product-moment correlation matrix R. Rather than directly fitting R, the procedure fits a structural model to R(a) =R+aI by minimizing the normal distribution-based discrepancy function, where a > 0… (More)
